Add My Condolences

Mr and Mrs Harmon and Cole
I recently found out about Zack's passing and my heart aches for all of you. I worked in the Gilbertsville Elementary School office where Zack was a student. He was always so polite and quiet when he would come into the office. I hope you can find comfort in the wonderful memories you have of him. He was lucky to have such wonderful, caring parents. My thoughts and prayers will continue to be with you and your family.

It’s a small comfort to believe heaven gained an angel, but heartbreaking to know our world lost a son, grandson, father, coworker, and a great young man. Peace be with you, Zach. And my prayers go out to the loving family you left behind. Until I see you again at the pearly gates, keep the Cokes on ice!

Zack, I just don’t know what to say, thoughts just keep bouncing around in my head. Lets start by saying I love you!!! I know the motorcycle was your therapy, just wish it was a life long therapy!!! I also wish that life would of given you a break, that life was easier, that people were better, and you found the love you soo desperate wanted!!! I’m going to miss busting your ??’s and trying to have you see that you deserved better than what life was giving you. That you needed to accept that people did love you!!!
I’ll try my best to help your love ones, especially your mom, but right now I just don’t know what to do! I’m so lost! It’s like a job that I have no idea how to do it, and it makes me so sad.
Please rest in peace, go fishing with Doug, ride your bike and find the missing Love. Hopefully your family and friends can rest in life and glorify in your memories!!!!
Love you!!!
Aunt Jenny
